    Does it blacken over time? If so, does the soot clean off easily? How often does it need to be cleaned?
    1 Answer
    This product can collect soot and permanently change colors over time. The accumulation of soot will depend on the application. In a woodburning fireplace, it may need to be cleaned after each fire to help reduce the permanent color change. Being used in conjunction with a gas log set, it would depend heavily on the BTU of the appliance and if the log set is vented or vent-free.

    How is the fireback positioned in the fireplace? Tight against the back or a space between the back and the fireback?
    1 Answer
    The fireback should be pushed back as far as possible. The legs that the fireback rests on will usually keep the plate about an inch or so away from the rear of the firebox, depending on which slot you mount the plate in for your desired positioning.

    Do these Copperfield stainless steel radiant firebacks work even after they get a smoky burned look?

    They do indeed, though regular cleaning can help with the reflection of heat.

    Are stainless firebacks safe for use in a fireplace with glass doors?
    1 Answer
    Because stainless firebacks radiate a great deal of heat, I do not recommend using them in a fireplace with the glass doors closed. The intense direction of heat could cause the glass to overheat and shatter.

    from WA asked:
    August 17, 2013
    Can these be used with gas fireplaces that are vented through a chimney? Can they be painted with heat resistant paint and used as the sides along with glass doors?
    1 Answer
    These firebacks can indeed be used with a vented fireplace. Painting the fireback is possible, but will require you to prep it by wiping it down with a 50/50 mix of water and vinegar to clean off any machine oil. The fireback must then be sanded with 60 or 80 grit sandpaper to roughen the surface. High heat paint must then be applied in several light, even coats.

    Can I use a fireback with ventless gas logs?
    1 Answer
    It is never recommended to use a fireback with ventless gas logs, as the heat radiated back onto the pilot assembly will be too intense.

    Great protection for the back of my fire place
    I wanted more heat and to stop replacing my fire box panels so I purchased this fireback. I still have not seen the bolstered increased warmth coming off the fireplace, but it has helped in protecting the back of the fireplace from damage.

    So far so good.
    Definitely reflects more heat than the cast iron one did. Didn't like the shiny finish so I took an angle grinder, made some swirly pattern, and then flame painted it with a torch. A real review on this kind of item shouldn't be done for at least a couple of seasons.
    Light weight. Reflects heat better than cast iron. reasonably priced. To shiny for me but I knew that when I ordered.

    Not bad
    Product came well protected in shipping. It seems to be strong (thick enough) metal, well made. It made a noticeable difference in heat production.

    The panel warped after one fire, but I just assume it's because I leaned the firewood up against the panel - somewhat a necessity for my fireplace. Not a big deal.

    First time using a fireback
    I purchased this item for two reasons. First to help protect the aging process of my 50 year old firebox. Too soon to know results. Second to provide reflective heat into the room. There is some added benefit, but not as much as I had hoped for. Maybe should have purchased a cast iron fireback instead.
    Disappointed in amount of reflective heat.

    Our Fireplace back wall is protected, and the heat is coming into the room more effectively. Seems simple enough, yet it would have been nice to receive some instructions on how to set the fireback up on the brackets that came with it.

    Stainless Steel Radiant Fireback
    We have a wood burning fireplace. Since some of the large wood logs were falling back against the brick, we noticed slight lines in the brick giving we bought this Radiant Fireback. We selected the 20" x 20". So far we are happy with it, it does protect the back wall, we do not use the legs as it makes hard to clean the ashes. It does need to be taken out and cleaned, as the fire gets it smoky and black, but that's life.... It does work protecting the back wall from cracking... and that was what we needed. We do plan to buy the grate with the blowers to get more heat into the living room.
    Heavy duty protects the back wall and nicely reflects the fire. Has to be cleaned often.

    Reflective Fireback
    We are quite please with our fireback. Although it does not reflect quite as much heat as we had hoped, we think a good part of this is because our ancient log set needs to be replaced. We expect to have much better heat distribution into the room when we correct this issue. The unit was easy to install and does add a very nice glow to the fireplace. We are glad we made the purchase.
    By Allan from Texas on December 11, 2014
    Too small to radiate much heat
    My fireplace is small so this was the largest fireback that would fit. After reinstalling the grate and fake logs in my gas-burning fireplace, there wasn't much of the fireback left exposed to do any good. In hindsight a fireback with side panels would be much better as the larger surface area would reflect much more heat.
    The quality is very good. It is heavy and the foot brackets allow various adjustment. Too small to reflect much heat in my small fireplace.

    Cast iron might be a better choice
    After having to replace my back refractory panel, I read that firebacks not only projected more heat but also protected the back panel. The price for this steel unit was right so I decided to give it a try. At first i was put off by the shiny stainless steel, however; the fire soot soon darkened the surface. The stands work well and there is no danger of the fireback tipping over. The steel is a thick guage and the edges are beveled to reduce the buckling caused by the heat of the fire. Even with the edge bevels, there is a some buckling to the fireback. It is easy to see by the fact that the support stands are no longer parellel. This occurred after the first extended fire. I suppose the general function of the fireback has not been impacted, and the buckling has not gotten worse over a winter of fires, however; I may go with a thicker cast iron fireback. Don't get me wrong, the fireback is sturdy and should last for several years, and, given the price, is better than not having anything. Also it does put out noticeably more heat.

    Copperfiled Stainless Steel Radiant Fireback
    I wanted to get more our of my fireplace. After reviewing articles and many statements on the internet I decided to purchase the Copperfield stainless steel radiant fireback. It was shipped well, very easy to install and I noticed the improvement immediately. I can feel the heat from much further away now, which is exactly what I wanted. It will also protect the rear wall of my fireplace, which is almost 100 years old. I'm extremely happy with my decision and the product I purchased from here and their superior service. I would recommend doing business with them and the product itself anytime. Thank you
